Did you ever land at a blog, and spend more time staring at the clever graphic than you did reading the post?
I have. The same way you landed here and stared at the one above, wondering, “How did she do that?”
Here are some ideas for using these cool graphics in a publicity or marketing campaign.
The Talking Tomato
If you work in the food industry, use the Talking Tomato at your website. Let’s say you teach kids about healthy food. You can explain the nutritional benefits of tomatoes.
The Talking Cat
Humane societies and pet shops will love the talking cat. Simply insert the HTML code at your website. And then sponsor a contest to see who can come up with the most clever sayings for the cat. Award fun prizes.
Bloggers, I’ll bet this newspaper generator will come in handy when you’re writing about a topic and can’t find a photo anywhere to accompany it. It isn’t animated. But you can create your own headline and write your own story:
The Cigarette Pack
Does your product or service help people to quit smoking?
Create your own cigarette pack and come up with a clever saying. You can use the graphic in your online press room and even offer it to journalists. I love the saying on the sample SMOKEME cigarette pack at their website:
You can also choose from the Ninja (the one you were staring at at the top of this blog post), a clapper board perfect for people in the movie industry, talking squirrels, animated wizard text, talking flowers and talking owls.
Don’t forget Flickr, the social media site for uploading photos and videos. See 9 ways to use Flickr to promote your business.
OK, Hounds. It’s your turn. Use the generator to create a graphic that you could use in a publicity or marketing campaign. Post it in the comments section below. Or if it’s at your website or blog, link to it.
If for some reason it won’t show up correctly in the comments section, open a Notepad document, paste in the HTML code and send it to me as an attachment. Do not put it in the body of the email. If I get enough clever ones, I’ll feature some of them next week.
P.S. Comments at this blog are moderated, which means they won’t appear here until I approve them. What tools do you use that are similar to these? Did you find the free generator as easy to use as I did?
